This project includes identifying nutritious coastal marine fish for food that maintain ecosystem functioning; assessing the acceptability and feasibility of these fish as foods for nourishing vulnerable populations of pregnant and lactating women and young children; and determining market conditions for ensuring availability, affordability, and safety of these coastal marine fish as food. The research will provide a comprehensive inventory of coastal marine fish for food that maintain ecosystem functioning and address micronutrient deficiencies in vulnerable groups and yield insights into current household fish consumption and social dynamics in low-income households.
